In a hyper-connected world, executives need immediate access to very precise information that drives intelligent and thoughtful decision-making. The landscape for business intelligence has changed dramatically. The Internet and social media networks are oceans of jumbled and chaotic information that need to be tamed into actionable business intelligence.

Finding the “x” factor demands having 360 degree information.

To succeed in B2B sales it is an agreed upon fact that research is mandatory. But who has the time to go beyond Google, LinkedIn and company web sites? The real nuggets of actionable information are in social media posts, the buzz around executives, news coverage about them and their companies, and what is going on in various industries. Gaining a strategic advantage requires collecting and curating this critical information and connecting the dots for a data-driven sales strategy. But this takes a significant amount of time, until now.
